Why Do You Need Wisdom Tooth Removal?

Wisdom teeth, also known as the third molar teeth are located at the back of the mouth. They usually appear between the ages of 15 and 25. However, they may not emerge on their own if they are impacted.

If they have become impacted it can cause discomfort and increase the risk of infection. It may also lead to other oral health issues such as crowding, tooth decay, or gum infection. Removing them at the first sign of problems and before any complications arise is crucial.

How Are Wisdom Teeth Extracted at Shoreline Dental Care?

Our office offers oral conscious sedation for those patients who may have added anxiety surrounding this dental procedure. Next, our Dr. Tartagni will extract the tooth by making an incision near the gums and pulling the tooth out through the opening. The process can take anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, depending on how many teeth need to be removed.

How To Prepare For A Wisdom Teeth Extraction

If your wisdom teeth are causing discomfort, schedule an appointment to discuss extraction with our oral surgeons. We will examine your mouth thoroughly and determine if surgery is the right course of action.

To prepare for your appointment, you should avoid eating anything the day of your appointment and do not smoke or use tobacco products. Wear comfortable clothing, and don’t wear lipstick or heavy makeup, as we’ll be working very closely inside your mouth.

As with any oral surgery, it’s important to plan ahead and discuss the process with your dentist. Dr. Jason Tartagni is licensed to provide in-house oral conscious sedation right here in our Milford and West Haven offices so you can relax throughout the entire process.
